Fuck I’m walking downtown and I pass a group of guys staring at me and I think “great catcall time” but then one guy goes “you look like you could kill a man a million different ways with just your bare hands”. This. This is an acceptable comment to give a girl on the street.

Lemme tell you why this book is so awesome.

I mean, yes, there is a black bisexual hero. And a mad lesbian governess. And a half-Chinese genderqueer sky pirate. THERE IS ALSO A KRAKEN (which may or may not be queer). And an aethership. But the narrative is the real star of this show. Look at this blurb. Look at it.

A breathtaking tale of passion and adventure in the untamed skies!

Prosperity, 1863: a lawless skytown where varlets, chancers, and ne’er-do-wells risk everything to chase a fortune in the clouds, and where a Gaslight guttersnipe named Piccadilly is about to cheat the wrong man. This mistake will endanger his life … and his heart.

Thrill! As our hero battles dreadful kraken above Prosperity. Gasp! As the miracles of clockwork engineering allow a dead man to wreak his vengeance upon the living. Marvel! At the aerial escapades of the aethership, Shadowless.

Beware! The licentious and unchristian example set by the opium-addled navigatress, Miss Grey. Disapprove Strongly! Of the utter moral iniquity of the dastardly crime prince, Milord. Swoon! At the dashing skycaptain, Byron Kae. Swoon Again! At the tormented clergyman, Ruben Crowe.

This volume (available in print, and for the first time on mechanical book-reading devices) contains the complete original text of Piccadilly’s memoirs as first serialised in All the Year Round. Some passages may prove unsettling to unmarried gentlemen of a sensitive disposition.

Plus it’s only the first in a series! (Early next year there’ll be a whole collection of novelettes set in this world.) And it was written by the hilarious, brilliant, Lambda Literary Award nominated Alexis Hall (of Glitterland and Kate Kane: Paranormal Investigator fame)! And it’s on pre-sale for only $4.99 (or $13.59 if you prefer a paper copy with that gorgeous full jacket, or $16.79 if you want both)! Whaaaaaaat is not to love? :D

Story time. This was actually the very first manuscript Alexis ever subbed us. He sent it in for a steampunk call, and originally it was full of footnotes, Good Omens style. They were hilarious, but presented something of an enormous problem for an e-first publisher two years ago, so despite me being more excited about this manuscript than I had been about just about any other slush in the history of space and time, I regretfully had to reject. Alexis was actually the first author I have ever scheduled a call with to reject over the phone because I felt the story was so stunningly brilliant that I wanted to gush at him while I let him down gently. I also wanted to beg him for anything else he’d ever written or was considering writing. We got Glitterland, Iron & Velvet, and Shadows & Dreams out of that exchange :D

So, fast forward a couple years, and imagine my unrestrained delight (okay, he probably heard me squeeing across the pond in England) when he re-subbed the manuscript with no footnotes. Suddenly we had a book we could format for easy consumption on an e-reader. Boy did we sign that contract fast :D

So, yeah. If you feel even the teeniest, tiniest bit inclined to trust my taste, you’re gonna want to check this one out <3

Dear people who are skeptical or completely against being in a relationship with a bisexual or pansexual person because of the “competition,”

Being bisexual/pansexual doesn’t mean you’re automatically attracted to anybody with genitals any more than having more than one salad dressing option available to you means you’ll put every type of dressing on top of your salad.

Sincerely,
common sense

Same goes for poly folks, thnx.

Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.

It’s also story about breaking down the barriers of racism which we also need more of.

And it’s about nice hair and cheesy dance moves, more things we need more of

It’s a movie where John Travolta plays a chick, which we need more of

Why do dirty hippies act like John Lennon was a saint

He physically abused both his wives, emotionally abused his son, was openly homophobic and antisemetic, was controlling and misogynist, he literally made yoko ono write a list of all the men she’d been with…
